Count Omega - Dramatisation by MMS of the extraordinary Lord Berners' best novel, featuring his own music. Like most of Berners' fiction it is a roman à clef.

Features a tremendous performance by Rupert Graves as the young composer Emanuel Smith, and a large cast including Jane Wyman, Rachel Gurney & Irene Prador. Total duration 110'
